You are invited to celebrate World IP day with us on Thursday April 26th from 4-6 pm at our IP Open House in the Library’s Collaboratory in the SLC.
Established by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), World Intellectual Property Day occurs every April 26th to recognize the role that intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, industrial designs, copyright) play in encouraging innovation and creativity.
Please join us at an open house from 4pm – 6pm to learn about what supports are available at Ryerson to move your ideas from the lab to the market place. Drop by for a cookie and to talk to OPVRI and Library staff and external IP experts who can answer your questions about patents, trademarks, and copyrights. You can also explore the Ryerson Library Collaboratory, a just launched is a space and initiative in the 3rd floor of the Library that provides faculty and their research teams with space and technology resources to facilitate research and course development.
This year WIPO is celebrating women and IP, see Powering Change: Women in Innovation and Creativity on the WIPO site.
